Guillaume Sutre, violin
Kyunghee Kim-Sutre, harp
First prize winner of the Elizabeth Herbert Hobin Harp Competition in 1987, Kyunghee Kim-Sutre is recognized as one of the finest harpists of her generation. Consistently performing in the most prestigious of international venues, both as a soloist and in chamber music, the broad range of cultural backgrounds that comprise her education – Korean, French and American – beautifully color her extensive repertoire, from music by Dussek to that of living composers. She works with many of today's most talented musicians, including Raphaël Oleg, Laure Colladant, Jocelyn Aubrun, Ronald Leonard, David Grimal, Michel Moragues, the Ysaÿe Quartet, the Ludwig Quartet and the Voce Quartet.
With Guillaume Sutre, she is first prize winner of the ‘Lily Laskine’ Chamber Music Competition in 1991, and for more than twenty years, she and Sutre have extensively explore and perform the relatively esoteric repertoire for violin and harp, thus renewing the tradition of the Salon de Musique, an intimate and lively concert format popular during the time of the creative and merry atmosphere of the Belle Époque.
Some of her recitals have been broadcast by the channel Muzzik (Festival Ravel, 1998), and by the Arte Channel (Flâneries Musicales in Reims, 1999). Her album of the Jan Ladislav Dussek and Sophia Corri Dussek Sonatas for Solo Harp has garnered critical acclaim and has quickly become a reference for that repertoire. Her new Sonarti CD, Joseph Woelfl: The Paris Years (1801-1805), featuring chamber works by the Austrian composer Joseph Woelfl, was lauded by musical critics, including the Diapason magazine with a 5 of Diapason.
Born in Seoul, Kyunghee Kim-Sutre began her musical studies at the age of eight and later entered Seoul National University where she studied with Kyo-Sook Lee. Accepted at the esteemed Curtis Institute of Music, she became the student of Marilyn Costello (soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra) for four years. After graduating from Curtis, she pursued her musical education with Susan McDonald at The Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University and Brigitte Sylvestre at the Paris Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique where she received a Premier Prix de Harpe à l’Unanimité.
Kyunghee Kim-Sutre plays a Lyon & Healy Style 11 Gold, as well as a rare 1904 instrument made by the famous French harp maker, Sébastien Érard, who invented the double-function pedal harp we know today.
was only eighteen years old when he won first prize in the Alberto Curci International Violin Competition in Naples, Italy and the International Piano Trio ARD Competition in Munich. The list quickly fills out with a first prize at the European Chamber Music Competition FNAPEC (1989), first prize at the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition (USA 1990), winner of the Prix de la Fondation Charles Oulmont (1990), first prize at the Lily Laskine Competition (1991) and winner of the Prix Georges Enesco de la SACEM (1994). In 1999, he was named Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government.
Mr. Sutre was attracted to chamber music early in his career. In 1986, he founded the Trio Wanderer; ten years later he became the first violinist of the Ysaÿe Quartet, a post he held for almost twenty years until their farewell concert in 2014 in Paris’ Cité de la Musique. His vast repertoire of over 500 works features all the string chamber music of Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann and all 68 Haydn quartets. He has performed at many of the most prestigious venues around the world with such performers as Nelson Freire, Lynn Harrell, Leonidas Kavakos, Yo-Yo Ma, Jean-Claude Pennetier, Michel Portal, Pascal Rogé and Sir Yehudi Menuhin. With his wife Kyunghee Kim-Sutre, he formed a violin and harp duo, an ensemble through which they both continually explore and deepen their existing repertoire.
His recordings for Sony Classical, Decca, Harmonia Mundi, Naïve, Aeon, Ysaÿe Records, Hortus and Sonarti have received the highest distinctions in France and internationally. His live recording of the complete duets of Haydn and Mozart with violist Miguel da Silva has been hailed by critics as definitive, his CD featuring the quartets of A. Boucourechliev was awarded the Charles Cros Academy’s Grand Prix du Disque, and his two recent albums, J. Woelfl: The Paris Years (Sonarti) and Pensés Intimes (Hortus / WWI), received the 5 of Diapason.
Professor of a string quartet class at the Paris City Conservatory for ten years, since 2008 he has held the position of Professor of Violin and director of string chamber music at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music in Los Angeles. Mr. Sutre is passionately committed to imparting his knowledge upon musicians of younger generations. He regularly performs with his students and in 2014 he co-produced the Calidore Quartet's debut CD. He regularly serves on juries of prestigious competitions, such as the Long-Thibaud International Violin Competition in Paris, the A. Postacchini International Violin Competition in Italy and the International String Quartet Competition in Bordeaux.
The year 2016 holds several important celebrations: the 25th anniversary of the Duo Sutre-Kim and the cultural year of Korea in France featuring a premiere of the commissioned work The Shadow of Arirang by Korean composer Paul Yeon Lee at the Festival des Grandes Heures in Saint-Emilion, France, and the October 2016 release of Duo Sutre-Kim’s upcoming CD (Sonarti) featuring Charles Bochsa and Rodolphe Kreutzer’s six Nocturnes Concertants for Harp and Violin and celebrating the 250th anniversary of Kreutzer’s birth on November 16, 2016.
Guillaume Sutre began his studies in Douai, France; he then entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris at age fourteen with Gérard Poulet and Jean-Claude Pennetier. After finishing his studies in France, he attended Indiana University at Bloomington to study with Josef Gingold, Franco Gulli, Menahem Pressler and Janos Starker. He subsequently studied in Cologne with the Amadeus Quartet.
Guillaume Sutre plays a violin made by Gregorio Antoniazzi, an enigmatic Venetian maker from the eighteenth century.
